Many teens, especially girls, struggle with self identity and learning to accept themselves. Mulan is the story of one determined and strong-willed girl that finds a way to achieve what she wants, even through the criticism of others. This movie is best for showing girls to keep fighting and not let what others say get in your way. Buy it Here.
Alice in Wonderland
Clumsy little Alice, falling through the rabbit hole. Which version is a matter of personal preference, since both of the versions are pretty different from each other. This movie has a lot of humor and fun, and portrays a brave and determined young girl finding her way through the chaos of Wonderland. Overall, Alice tells girls no matter how crazy things may seem you can never give up, plus this movie is pretty humorous. Buy it Here.
Although this isnâ€™t the time for most when girls are forced into marriage by their parents, Merida can be inspiring. She makes her own mistakes and causes her own problems at times. However, she learns to appreciate what she has and fight for her own thoughts and opinions to be heard. This girl is pretty strong and inspiring. Buy it Here.
Pocahontas went through a whole lot of chaos in this movie, hm? This woman is a strong willed and thoughtful character who deals with a lot of stressful factors, all with a love story woven in between. Throughout the movie she proves to teens that fighting for what you believe in can succeed, not to give up, and most importantly: you donâ€™t need a knight in shining armor to come save you. Buy it Here.
Beauty and the Beast
Who doesnâ€™t love a love story as a teen? I mean come on, falling for a beast is amusing and mysterious, isnâ€™t it? Beauty and the Beast shows an image of a courageous and selfless girl. Although falling in love with a beast is kind of sketchy, it does show the concept of not judging a book by its cover or that love is about whatâ€™s on the inside. This movie has comedy, romance, fear, and more. This one doesnâ€™t necessarily teach girls much, itâ€™s just a romance must-see for any teen. Buy it Here.
Mulan, Alice in Wonderland, Brave, Pocahontas, and Beauty and the Beast. Quite a diverse pick isnâ€™t it? However, all of these have good lessons and messages behind them for teen girls. Try getting your teen to watch these sometime!
